The Sugar n Spice and Everything Nice PDF sewing pattern from Oh Sew Kat! is a short sleeved, full skirted dress with fun accessories, including a pinafore, and an overskirt.

You can certainly add real buttons and button holes to your skirt. I opted for hook and loop tape to keep my skirts easy for children’s little fingers. I added enough of the hook and loop tape to close the skirt up. I added the tape first, then sewed the buttons next to it. I folded the edge back in and stitched down next to the buttons so I didn’t have to sew the buttons on through the tape.

Make it Monday: Black and Gold Honey Bees Fabric

Which comes first for you? The fabric or the pattern? Do you carefully select the garment you want to sew and then head to the fabric store or search your stash? Or do you finger a favorite fabric and then head to the pattern drawer, your computer files, or the internt to decide what that fabric will become?

Today I’m sharing two outfits that were inspired by this pretty fabric collection.

Which comes first? The pattern or the fabric?

I do a lot of both. This golden fabric collection is called BEE JOYFUL by Deb Strain for Moda. I bought it in a local quilt shop, but you can still find it on Amazon here: Ad: Bee Joyful Fabric . I matched it with some Riley Blake black gingham accents. Once I made the Boardwalk Boutique outfit, I went back and made a Spring Shine Top to go with the pants to get two fun outfits!

I love this fabric and I love how it works for a doll dress even though it’s such a big, bold print. Normally, we try to pick fabrics that have a design about the size of a US coin, the quarter, but when you have a pattern like the School Dance Dress – it can let you go big and bold even for dolls! (I would never use this print for the smaller, 14.5 dolls- I’m pretty sure it would overwhelm their small size, but it does work for larger, wider dolls.)
